Event Dressing Inspiration…
A strange thing happens to the high street at this time of year. Suddenly everything is (a) black, (b) sparkly and (c) figure-hugging. Very often – this isn’t what we need or want. The outfit I turn to at this time of year is a little less ‘bling’ yet still feels special…
It’s my midnight blue velvet trouser suit. In the last month I have worn it for cocktails, a lunch, a dinner party, and a networking event. It’s the gift that keeps on giving!
When I bought this suit, over 5 years ago, there were very few options around. This season, there are plenty. Check out Reiss; Jigsaw; Bella Freud; Matchesfashion and Cos – you’ll be spoilt for choice. And if a full-on trouser suit is not for you, invest in a velvet blazer and see the difference it will make to your wardrobe.
One of my greatest joys is helping clients see potential in their clothing. Do get in touch if you need help discovering yours. It would be a pleasure.
You’re very welcome
Have a great week-end and feel free to share this post.
